  2. Have you looked at the Amazon PD books? I got the two Sherlock Holmes story collections. There is NO dedicated/linked Table of Contents!! If I want to read the third story, I can’t get there directly. That’s terrible.

    I think you should do a little exploring on a number of the PD titles, and write a post on their formatting, etc. I am skeptical that they are worth the effort.

    It would seem that Feedbooks, or Manybooks is better, let alone Mobilereference ttiles (which are excellent, but, at the moment, not available on Amazon.)
